1. Art should make you feel something
According to a interview with one of the creator of this system, Mark Allen has mentioned that, players got very aggressive and played with this incredible showmanship.  It was like they were performing the piece.
How does that happened?  I think it is because of the electric shocks, the electric shock has bring the avatar and the player together, they share the same pain and damage, so the player is "sync" with the avatar.  And winning has became a very important goal to you and your avatar.  And all these stuffs has lead to more aggressive and more wanted to win.

2. Game developers must experiment with the medium.  They must take risks and break new ground.
As we know and also mentioned by Mark allen, they use electric shocks to mimic the damage and the pain in the virtue world.  Mark allen has also mentioned that the shocks are designed to contract player's muscle.  All these stuffs has put Eddo Stern, C-level and the players in risks, they might kill the players accidentally, and Eddo Stern's fame may destroyed by this.
